Hywel Williams
'Let each know that for each the body, the mind and the soul have been freed to fulfil themselves.' These powerful words, spoken by Nelson Mandela in his inaugural address as the new president of South Africa, are taken from just one of the forty important and thought-provoking speeches in this collection. Ranging from 1945 to the present day, they provide an important insight into the modern world. Inspirational speeches by Winston Churchill, Mikhail Gorbachev, Martin Luther King, Barack Obama and many others are supplemented with biographies of each speaker, as well an exploration of their words' significance and an historical account of the consequences of their oratory. This is a history of the recent and contemporary world told through the speeches that shaped it.

    Great Commanders of the Modern World

    By Andrew Roberts
    Authors:
    Andrew Roberts
    What tactics did Montgomery employ to defeat Rommel at El Alamein? How did General Gap's Viet Minh troops inflict defeat on a French army at Dien Bien Phu, despite the massive artillery superiority of their opponents? What was the secret behind George S. Patton's masterly control of armoured units? In Great Commanders of the Modern World, Andrew Roberts has assembled some of our most distinguished historians (including such names as Michael Burleigh, Simon Sebag Montefiore and Richard Overy) to provide an authoritative account of the lives and careers of the 24 greatest military commanders of the period, from Erich Ludendorff to John Pershing, Heinz Guderian to Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Ivan Konev to Moshe Dayan. As accessible and informative as it is rigorous and scholarly, Great Commanders of the Modern World is the perfect introduction to its subject for the general reader, but also a stimulating and thought-provoking read for those with greater knowledge of military history. Along with the other volumes in the Great Commanders series, it is an indispensable guide to the greatest generals the world has seen.

    What qualities made the Duke of Wellington a strategic genius? How did Oliver Cromwell, a gentleman farmer, create an army that overthrew a king and changed the course of British history? Why was Simón Bolívar able to overcome early defeats to become the greatest figure in the Latin American struggle against Spanish colonialism. In Great Commanders of the Early Modern World, Andrew Roberts has assembled some of our most distinguished historians (including such names as Antonia Fraser, Saul David and Philip Dwyer) to provide an authoritative account of the lives and careers of the 26 greatest military commanders of the period, from the Duke of Marlborough to Napoleon Bonaparte, Robert Clive to Carl von Clausewitz, and Frederick the Great to Shaka Zulu. As accessible and informative as it is rigorous and scholarly, Great Commanders of the Early Modern World is the perfect introduction to its subject for the general reader, but also a stimulating and thought-provoking read for those with greater knowledge of military history. Along with the other volumes in the Great Commanders series, it is an indispensable guide to the greatest generals the world has seen.
